Read full description of the books:
Comics and Sequential Art is the first of three books in a series of comic book instructional books written by comics legend Will Eisner. The creator of the widely-popular Spirit comic strip from the 1940s, Eisner wrote one of the earliest (if not THE earliest) books exploring the medium of comic book storytelling, dissecting it and distilling it for would-be creators to consume and enjoy.
I first heard of this book when reading Scott McCloud's incredible Understanding Comics, in which he makes multiple references to this book and how much it influenced him personally. Part of me wishes I would have read this one first, because compared to Understanding Comics, this book falls short on the meta-delivery of the information. In Understanding Comics, the entire book is itself a comic book, which uses comic book and sequential art precepts to communicate the instructional and educational components. In Comics and Sequential Art, the entire book is narrative and extant examples taken from Eisner's own creations (with one or two exceptions).
I can see how McCloud was influenced by this book, and how revolutionary and revealing it may have seemed. It still holds up as a book on comics theory, but pales in comparison, depth, delivery and content to McCloud's own books.

Read information about the authorWill Eisner was born on March 6, 1917 in Brooklyn, New York. By the time of his death on January 3, 2005, Will Eisner was recognized internationally as one of the giants in the field of sequential art, a term he coined.
In a career that spanned nearly eight decades -- from the dawn of the comic book to the advent of digital comics - Will Eisner was truly the 'Father of the Graphic Novel' and the 'Orson Welles of Comics.' He broke new ground in the development of visual narrative and the language of comics and was the creator of The Spirit, John Law, Lady Luck, Mr. Mystic, Uncle Sam, Blackhawk, Sheena, and countless others.
During World War II, Will Eisner used the comic format to develop training and equipment maintenance manuals for the US Army. After the war this continued as the Army's "PS Magazine" which is still being produced today. Will Eisner taught Sequential Art at the New York School of Visual Arts for 20 years. The textbooks that he wrote were based on his course and are still bestsellers. In 1978, Will Eisner wrote "A Contract with God," the first modern Graphic Novel. This was followed by almost 20 additional graphic novels over the following 25 years.
The "Oscars" of the Comic Industry are called The Eisner Awards, and named after Will Eisner. The Eisners are presented annually before a packed ballroom at San Diego Comic-Con, America's largest comics convention.
Wizard magazine named Eisner "the most influential comic artist of all time." Michael Chabon's Pulitzer-prize winning novel "Kavalier and Clay" is based in good part on Eisner. In 2002, Eisner received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Federation for Jewish Culture, presented by Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Art Spiegelman.
